Instructions:

How to paint a polka dot piggy bank

 

Step 1: Paint the paper mâché form with a layer of gesso. This will prevent your paint from absorbing into the form and ensure an even finish.

 

Step 2: Paint the paper mâché form with the colour paint of your choice. For this project, we chose white so the coloured pens would really pop.

 

Step 3: Using various colours of Pébéo 4Arist markers, press the point lightly to the surface and create patterns with evenly spaced coloured dots. Let the paint dry.

You will need:

  • Paper mâché piggy bank
  • Gesso
  • Pébéo Studio acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pébéo 4Artist oil-based markers
  • Allow the paint to dry completely between each step before proceeding.
  • Be careful not to seal the stopper and clamps with paint.
  • Paint the stopper and clamps separately so that you will be able to remove your money later.
